lee: to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. ms. jackson lee: i thank the speaker this morning and this afternoon, and i am grateful for the words, prayer that were offered about light, both of inspiration and collaboration. i think that there are bipartisan voices crying out for an acceptance of a tax cut on 98% of the american people. that is why the president went to michigan to speak to working men and women, to be able to reaffirm their voices that were spoken so loudly on november 6. let us have a tax cut that will impact 98% of the american people and businesses and let us collaboratively work together for the steps going forward. let me be very clear. having spoken to physicians yesterday, meetings in hospitals, you cannot raise the eligibility rate of medicare recipients. it just will not work. you cannot judge a person's physical condition between 65 and 67. that is not the way to balance the budget and reduce the deficit. we know that entitlements, social security, is not the issue. mass -- pass the tax cuts on 98%, mr. speaker, and
